Who will win the maximum Oscar awards in 2021? The nominations for the 93rd Annual Academy Awards were announced Monday morning, March 15, 2021, and definitely featured some unexpected twists. Movies like ‘Nomadland’ and ‘Mank’ were considered to be frontrunners for this year’s event and they certainly garnered numerous nominations. Meanwhile, ‘Borat 2’, ‘Promising Young Woman’ and ‘Minari’ gave a tough competition to the frontrunners by garnering multiple nominations across various categories.

The movie theatres in the US were forced to shut their door for the public due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The global health crisis also prompted the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to delay this year’s ceremony and change its eligibility criteria.
